The Flaming Grill pub in Colchester Road, re-opened its doors, introducing a new flame grill inspired décor as well as new furniture and kitchen equipment.

The Royal George also showcased a chargrill menu focused on steaks and grills, delivered on hot skillets that sizzle when served to bring a touch of theatre to the dish. ­

Returning to the menu are Flaming Grill’s infamous food challenges including the Trash Can Challenge.

True to its name this ultimate challenge is a trash can lid full of a giant rack of ribs, a large cheese and bacon burger, a chilli beef sundae, southern fried chicken skewer, onion rings, corn on the cob, and double baked beans – topped off with a triple portion of chips.

General manager at the Royal George, Nicki Barter said: “The opening has been a flaming triumph with great feedback from regulars on the delicious menu and fantastic new interiors.

“Some brave locals have already taken on the 1kg Flaming Challenge Burger but few have succeeded in finishing the whole plate. We look forward to welcoming more guests to the Royal George try out the dishes for themselves.”
